Al Gore and all his “Goredistas” continually sound the alarm that humans are killing the planet!

The only problem with that, is that hardly anyone believes them.

One of the funnier things to see is Obama and Democrats in the liberal media sound the alarm on Global Warming, when most Americans really could care less. A recent Pew poll report shows just how little they care about the issue:

The center asked a nationally representative pool of Americans which policy issues they believe should be a top priority for the Obama administration and newly appointed Congress this year. Only 38 percent of people said they thought global warming qualifies, which is almost low enough to make the issue the least important to the American public out of 23 responses. Only global trade, which 30 percent of respondents said was a top priority, was lower.

Here is the chart that shows Global Warming is second from the bottom of the list.

So the libs got caught off guard by this poll, but wait! There’s more!!

Pew also showed that Democrats don’t give a hoot about so-called “man-made global warming,” either.

Ha!

Defending against terrorism, strengthening the economy and improving the job situation rank among the leading priorities for both Republicans and Democrats. But strengthening the military and reducing the deficit rate as more important for Republicans than Democrats, while improving education and dealing with the problems of the poor rank higher for Democrats than Republicans.

Lake-Michigan November 2014
The Frozen view of Lake Michigan and Chicago

Hat/Tip to Jon Erdman at Weather.com.

The only thing that is more mortally wounded than that bird on your Thanksgiving table is Al Gore’s Global Climate Warming Change fear factory. Record cold temperatures are being recorded all across the country. Waves of cold Arctic air are finding their way down into the “lower 48” and wreaking havoc along the way.

Record-Breaking November Arctic Cold

arctic-13nov14

 

Long Lasting Cold

Above is a European computer model of the Arctic blasts that are reaching their way deep into the Continental United States.

With blocking high pressure aloft over eastern Alaska and northwest Canada, a direct pipeline of cold air came from Siberia to near the North Pole, then southward into Canada and the U.S., particularly the Plains and Midwest. While not as cold in magnitude, the arctic surges have also swept into parts of the East, though there was a brief mild spell in between the first two cold snaps along the East Coast.

Here is the general timing of each arctic cold surge, and when the coldest air may ease:

First arctic surge: Spread into the East last week (November 11-15).

– Second arctic surge: Blasted through the East, Midwest, and South through early Thursday (November 16-20). For parts of the mid-Mississippi Valley, Ohio Valley, Tennessee Valley and the Middle Atlantic States, this was the coldest of the surges, with numerous daily record lows broken.

– Third arctic surge: Reached the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest Thursday, then slid east across the Great Lakes and parts of the Northeast on Friday. It did not press nearly as far south as the first and second surges did.

– Cold relief: Relief began in the Rockies, then expanded into the southern Plains and Southeast Wednesday and Thursday. Midwest and Northeast relief arrives this weekend.

Other Cold Notables

– Burlington, Colorado, on the eastern Plains near the Kansas border, dipped to -10 Thursday, setting a new record low for the month of November.

– Casper, Wyoming, dipped to -27 at 11:59 p.m. Wednesday night, shattering their all-time November record low of -21 on Nov. 23, 1985 (records date to 1939). The temperature stayed at -27 at midnight Thursday, making it the new record low for Nov. 13 as well. Previously, the soonest Casper plunged to -27 was on Dec. 5, 1972. Casper’s high of 6 on Nov. 11 was the record earliest single-digit or colder high temperature there. (On Nov. 15, 1955, the high was only -3 degrees). Wednesday, Casper only managed a high of 3 degrees!

– Denver’s high of 6 on Nov. 12 was the coldest daily high so early in the season. Only three other November days had daily high temperatures colder in Denver, dating to 1872. Early Thursday morning, Denver chalked up a bone-chilling -14 degrees, easily the coldest temperature so early in the season. (Nov. 17, 1880 was the previous earliest such cold reading in Denver.)

– Livingston, Montana, dipped to minus 21 Wednesday, their coldest so early in the season. That said, they once dipped to minus 31 degrees just one day later in the calendar, on November 13, 1959.

– In the Southern Plains, Amarillo (21), Lubbock (27),  Childress (29) and Goodland (14) all set their coldest daily high temperatures on record for so early in the season on Wednesday.

– Riverton, Wyoming had a daytime high of 0 degrees Thursday.

– Redmond, Oregon, dropped to 19 degrees below zero Sunday morning, crushing its all-time record low for the month of November, previously 14 below zero on Nov. 15, 1955. Sunday’s low was an astonishing 23 degrees colder than the previous daily record for Nov. 16 in Redmond.

– Kansas City, Missouri set a record cool high of only 23 degrees on Monday, which beat the previous record of 24, which was set back in 1891.

– Joplin, Missouri set a record low for the month of November on Tuesday with a low temperature of 6 degrees.

– Paducah, Kentucky dropped to 10 degrees on Tuesday morning setting a record low and tying the third lowest temperature ever recorded in the month of November. The high temperature on Tuesday only reached 25 degrees, which is only the second time they have had a high that cold so early in the season.

– Valentine, Nebraska had a low of -12 on Tuesday morning, which shattered their previous record of 0.

– Dallas, Texas, saw highs of 45 degrees or colder for six consecutive days, Nov. 12 through Nov. 17. This is the longest such streak on record there in the month of November, besting a five-day streak in November 1937. (That month had a total of seven non-consecutive days with highs 45 or colder; that record still stands, for now.)

– Charlotte, North Carolina recorded a low of 14 degrees on Wednesday morning making it the coldest on record so early in the season.

– Charleston, West Virginia set a record low of 12 degrees on Wednesday, which made it the coldest on record for so early in the season.

– Macon, Georgia, plummeted to 17 degrees on Wednesday morning. Macon has never recorded a low in the teens or colder so early in the season since records began in 1892; in fact, the only other time they’ve seen teens in meteorological autumn (Sept. 1 to Nov. 30) was on Nov. 24-25, 1950, with lows of 19 and 10 degrees, respectively.

– Jacksonville, Florida dropped down to 24 degrees on Thursday morning, making it the coldest on record so early in the season. It is their third-coldest November reading on record, behind 23 degrees on Nov. 25, 1950, and 21 degrees exactly 20 years later on Nov. 25, 1970.

– South Bend, Indiana recorded eight consecutive days at or below freezing on Thursday, making it the longest streak on record for the month of November. The previous longest streaks were five days.

The Coldest Thanksgiving Since 1930?

Obama Flushes $3 billion of Taxpayer Dollars Into A Third World Climate Change Slush Fund

Share

 photo money_tree_biodiversity_zps8128b0ea.jpg
 

Climate change, it’s not about saving the planet. It’s about wealth transfer.

Barack Obama will announce a three billion dollar taxpayer funded US contribution to the world climate change fund.

The pledge is directed to the Green Climate Fund, a financial institution created last year by the United Nations with headquarters in Seoul, South Korea. It comes ahead of a Nov. 20 climate meeting in Berlin, at which countries have been asked to make formal commitments to the fund.

In particular, the world’s least developed economies insist that the world’s richest economies — which are also the largest greenhouse gas polluters — must commit to paying billions of dollars to help the world’s poorest adapt to the ravages of climate change.

By “adapt” they mean, of course, line their pockets with our money.

In Obama’s lefty worldview, it’s like reparations for colonialism, only better.

And $3 billion is merely the down payment.

At a 2009 climate change summit in Copenhagen, then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton pledged that by 2020 the United States would help mobilize $100 billion, through a combination of public aid and private investments, to flow annually from rich countries to poor countries to help the poor economies deal with climate change.

$100 billion dollars of our money. Annually. Flowing into the pockets of Third World shithole dictators everwhere! It’ll certainly change their, uh, “climate.” For the better, I’m sure.

But I guarantee it won’t do Thing One to change the weather.

Global Warming ‘Fabricated’ by NASA and NOAA

Share

NASA-Logo

Hat/Tip to Breitbart-London.

In recent articles here at CH2.0 we’ve covered the scam that is Global Climate Warming Change. We told you how one of NASA’s own calls it the “Biggest Fraud in the Field of Science,” and how, despite temperatures being cooler for the last decade plus, the Al Gore army are still saying that Global Warming CAUSES more ice…

Well, it would seem that NASA and NOAA have egg on their respective faces over their hysterical claims of climate doom.

Scientists at two of the world’s leading climate centres – NASA and NOAA – have been caught out manipulating temperature data to overstate the extent of the 20th century “global warming”.

The evidence of their tinkering can clearly be seen at Real Science, where blogger Steven Goddard has posted a series of graphs which show “climate change” before and after the adjustments.

When the raw data is used, there is little if any evidence of global warming and some evidence of global cooling. However, once the data has been adjusted – ie fabricated by computer models –  20th century ‘global warming’ suddenly looks much more dramatic.

This is especially noticeable on the US temperature records. Before 2000, it was generally accepted – even by climate activists like NASA’s James Hansen – that the hottest decade in the US was the 1930s.

Back in 1989, Hansen said this in a report:

In the U.S. there has been little temperature change in the past 50 years, the time of rapidly increasing greenhouse gases — in fact, there was a slight cooling throughout much of the country.

However, Hansen subsequently changed his tune when, sometime after 2000, the temperatures were adjusted to accord with the climate alarmists’ fashionable “global warming” narrative. By cooling the record-breaking year of 1934, and promoting 1998 as the hottest year in US history, the scientists who made the adjustments were able suddenly to show 20th century temperatures shooting up – where before they looked either flat or declining.

Thanks to the EPA and other government agencies screwing around with the data, the heat wave that produced the Dust Bowls is now no warmer than any other decade.

But as Goddard notes, the Environmental Protection Agency’s heatwave record makes a mockery of these adjustments. It quite clearly shows that the US heat waves of the 1930s were of an order of magnitude greater than anything experienced at any other time during the century – far more severe than those in the 1980s or 1990s which were no worse than those in the 1950s.

But in the spirit of Obama and his desire to globalize the United States, his lackeys have monkeyed with other the data of other countries, as well.

These adjustments, however, are not limited to the US temperature data sets. Similar fabrications have taken place everywhere from Iceland to Australia.

The fact that supposedly reputable scientists can make these dishonest adjustments and get away with it is, notes long-time sceptic Christopher Booker, one of the more remarkable anomalies of the great climate change scam.

When I first began examining the global-warming scare, I found nothing more puzzling than the way officially approved scientists kept on being shown to have finagled their data, as in that ludicrous “hockey stick” graph, pretending to prove that the world had suddenly become much hotter than at any time in 1,000 years. Any theory needing to rely so consistently on fudging the evidence, I concluded, must be looked on not as science at all, but as simply a rather alarming case study in the aberrations of group psychology.

Apollo Astronaut calls Climate Change ‘Biggest Fraud in the Field of Science’

Share
Walt-Cunningham-Apollo
Walter Cunningham, Apollo Astronaut

Hat/Tip to CNSNews.

Retired Marine Colonel Walter Cunningham and former NASA Astronaut in the Apollo Program has looked into Global Climate Warming Change extensively for the past 14 years and he has come to the conclusion that it’s a scam.

Climate alarmism is “the biggest fraud in the field of science” and the 97% consensus claim is nonsensical, Apollo 7 astronaut Walter Cunningham tells MRCTV in a preview of his presentation at the upcoming Heartland Institute climate conference, July 7-9.

“Since about 2000, I looked farther and farther into it,” Col. Cunningham (USMC, Ret.) tells MRCTV in an exclusive interview. “I found that not one of the claims that the alarmists were making out there had any bearings, whatsoever. And, so, it was kind of a no-brainer to come to the conclusion.”

Walt-Cunningham
USMC Col. Walter Cunningham (Ret.)

He reminds us that Global Warming isn’t a ‘theory,’ it’s a hypothesis.

Cunningham rejects the notion of man-made climate, not only as fact – but also as even qualifying as an actual “theory”:

“In the media, it was being called a theory. Obviously, they didn’t know what it means to be a theory.”

“If we go back to the warmist hypothesis – not a theory, but, a hypothesis – they’ve been saying from the very beginning that carbon dioxide levels are abnormally high, that higher levels of carbon dioxide are bad for humans, and they thought warmer temperatures are bad for our world, and they thought we were able to override natural forces to control the earth’s temperature. So, as I’ve looked into those, that’s the problem that I’ve found, because I didn’t find any of those to be correct – and, they certainly were not a theory, it was just their guess at what they wanted to see in the data they were looking at.”

And rather than tell you what you should think, like the Al Gore’s of the world do, he says check out the facts, and decide for yourselves.

Cunningham urges Americans to look at the data and decide for themselves, instead of taking anyone else’s word for it:

“You go out and take a look at it and you find out that a lot of it is pure nonsense and wishful thinking on the part of the alarmists who are looking for more and more money to fall into their hands.”

“Don’t believe it just because your professor said it. You gotta go take a look at it. Go back and look at the history of temperature and carbon dioxide, and you look at the value of carbon dioxide, and how it’s a benefit today.”

But what about all those greenhouse gases? What about that awful CO2?

Astronaut Walter Cunningham in the Apollo era
Walter Cunningham in the Apollo era

Cunningham notes that, while climate alarmists are concerned that the atmosphere currently contains 400 parts per million of CO2, that’s only a tenth of the level his spacecraft had to reach before causing concern. In his Apollo craft, an alarm would go off when CO2 reached 4,000 parts per million and, in today’s space shuttle, the trigger is 5,000. And, in submarines where crewmen may be on three-month missions, CO2 has to reach 8,000 parts per million before the alarm is activated.

Well, surely man’s burning of all that ‘fossil-fuel’ is causing climate disruption, right?

“In one area after another, we find these people overly concerned about, one, the danger they’re trying to push on us and, secondly, the claim that we can somehow or other control the earth’s temperature by affecting it,” Cunningham says.

“I can’t say we don’t have any impact, at all, but it’d be so miniscule and so tiny, that it wouldn’t be worth any effort.”

So, what does dictate the Earth’s temperature? Cunningham says it’s well-established that “principle controllers” are natural forces like sun, ocean temperature, and even volcanic activity.

Thus, he calls climate alarmism “the biggest fraud in the field of science”:

“The case is, to me, really, it’s laughable to find somebody who claims to be a serious scientist – that he would buy into this. So, I would really question anybody who claims to be a scientist doing this – so, what they do is try to control the nomenclature.”

“To me, it’s almost laughable, it’s the biggest fraud in the field of science, certainly in my lifetime, maybe the biggest one in centuries.”

It is good to see someone apply good old fashioned common sense to the idea of Global Climate Warming Change.

Global Warming now CAUSES more ice…

Share

still3_columbia_icebergs_2008_1080

Hat/Tip to the Daily Mail.

That’s right, Global Climate Warming Change is now responsible for MORE ice, and therefore more icebergs.

Who’d-a-thunk-it?

Earlier this year, global warming was blamed for the ‘irreversible retreat’ of west Antarctic glaciers. But now scientists claim that warming of the planet is in fact behind a paradoxical growth in South Pole sea ice. The comments come as Antarctica’s sea ice set a record this week, reaching 815,448 square miles (1,312,000 square km) of ice above its normal range.

But how is that possible?

Scientists believe the shift is caused by water melting from beneath the Antarctic ice shelves and re-freezing back on the surface.

“The primary reason for this is the nature of the circulation of the Southern Ocean – water heated in high southern latitudes is carried equatorward, to be replaced by colder waters upwelling from below, which inhibits ice loss,” Mark Serreze, director of the National Snow and Ice Data Centre.

Got that?

The planet is so hot that ice on the surface of the Antarctic melts and makes its way to the equator, so water from below floats up to replace that water and when it gets to that very hot surface, it…freezes.

saywhat

So it’s hot enough to melt the ice, but when the ice melts and goes on vacation, the water that replaces it, freezes instead of melting and going on vacation too.

But don’t worry, more ice isn’t nearly as important as less ice when deciding if there is Global Climate Warming Change.

However, as reported in a separate blog post by Mr. Ambler, NASA scientist Walt Meier said that growing Antarctic sea ice coverage is less significant a measure than declining Arctic sea ice coverage when assessing climate change.

So when we have more ice, that doesn’t mean that the planet is cooling, but when we have less ice it absolutely means that the planet is warming.

Talk about wanting it both ways. Is it any wonder that the vast majority of people can see right through the scam that is Global Climate Warming Change?

Enviro-Statists Pull Wool over Supremes’ Eyes – Again

Hat/Tip to The Washington Times.

The Flat Earth, No Growth Marxists who keep trying to push Global Climate Warming Change (or whatever they’re calling it this week) on us have done what scores of lefties before them have done – they’ve used the courts to get what they could not obtain legislatively.

A fractured Supreme Court on Monday largely upheld the Environmental Protection Agency’s radical rule designed to shut down the power plants that produce the most affordable electricity. The justices continue to accept the EPA’s labeling of carbon dioxide as a “pollutant.” This harmless gas, the agency insists, is melting the planet.

Only the brave deny man’s responsibility for super-heating the globe in precincts where the wise and wonderful (just ask them) gather to reassure each other than they know best. “We know the trends,” President Obama told the graduates at the University of California at Irvine the other day. “The 18 warmest years on record have all happened since you graduates were born.”

The charts and graphs devised by NASA and the government’s other science agencies back up the president’s words. And well they should, because the charts, like the “science,” were faked.

The “Steven Goddard Real Science” blog compares the raw U.S. temperature records from the Energy Department’s United States Historical Climatology Network to the “final” processed figures, to demonstrate how the historical data have been “corrected,” using computer modeling.

Even if they have to lie to get what they want, it’s not a problem for them to fudge the numbers or even outright manufacture them.

The modifications made to the past temperature record had the effect of cooling the 20th century, which makes temperatures over the last 14 years appear much warmer by comparison. Such changes don’t square with history, which shows the decade of the 1930s the hottest on record. The Dust Bowl storms were so severe they sent clouds of debris from Texas and Oklahoma to the East Coast, even darkening the skies over the U.S. Capitol one day in 1934.

In an inconvenient article from 1999, written before the data had been “corrected,” James Hansen, then a NASA scientist, acknowledged that the climate had held steady after the Dust Bowl storms. “In the U.S.,” wrote Mr. Hansen, “there has been little temperature change in the past 50 years, the time of rapidly increasing greenhouse gases — in fact, there was a slight cooling throughout much of the country.” Mr. Hansen, recognized as a godfather of the global warming doomcriers, then predicted that the first decade of the 21st century would be even hotter than the 1930s.

To produce this hotter result, the scientists “adjusted” the temperature records to make it appear so. NASA redrew the temperature chart Mr. Hansen used in 1999, and the new chart shows a dramatically cooled 1930s. The 1990s that Mr. Hansen once said were not so hot became warmer than the 1930s.

And our President, you know him, the smartest man to ever occupy the Oval Office? Well he’s swallowed this junk science, hook line and sinker because he’s a true believer. Just him and his pen and his phone…

But he sees that the public doesn’t believe it, so he’s getting desperate.

With the global warming scam unraveling before his very eyes, President Obama and his administration want action now. “The question is not whether we need to act,” says Mr. Obama. “The overwhelming judgment of science, accumulated and measured and reviewed over decades, has put that question to rest. The question is whether we have the will to act before it’s too late.”

Too late for what? The planetary thermometer hasn’t budged in 15 years. Wildfires, tornadoes, hurricanes and other “extreme” weather events are at normal or below-normal levels. Pacific islands aren’t submerged. There’s so much ice the polar bears are celebrating.

Obama Killing Coal With Regulations – Just Like He Promised

Share

Since his promise in 2008 Barack Obama has had it in for the coal industry in America. Let’s revisit what he said back then.

 

From a January 2008 interview with the San Francisco Chronicle editorial board

Yep, he said it. His goal is to bankrupt any business that relies on coal.

If somebody wants to build a coal-fired power plant, they can. It’s just that it will bankrupt them,” Obama said, responding to a question about his cap-and-trade plan. He later added, “Under my plan … electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.”

So fast forward to the present day and he is still at it.

On Monday, Obama plans to announce his decision to use his executive power to cut carbon emissions by up to 20 percent, a move that would be “the strongest action ever taken by an American president to tackle climate change,” The New York Times reports.

The initiative would allow states to use cap-and-trade systems, which let companies emitting pollutants buy and sell greenhouse gas emission allowances. A cap is set on the total number of permits to dispense carbon emissions. Companies that emit larger amounts of greenhouse gases can buy additional permits from companies that don’t need to emit as many.

Republican Senator Mike Enzi from Wyoming is having none of it.

Senator Mike Enzi R WY
Senator Mike Enzi R WY

President Barack Obama has “set out to kill coal” with his plans for cutting carbon emissions regulations like his proposed national energy tax, Sen. Mike Enzi said Saturday.

“We all want clean air and clean water,” Wyoming’s Enzi said in this week’s GOP address. “We don’t want costly regulations that make little or no difference, that are making things less affordable. Republicans want electricity and gas when you need it, at a price you can afford.”

“The Administration has set out to kill coal and its 800,000 jobs,” said Enzi of Obama’s plan. “if it succeeds in death by regulation, we’ll all be paying a lot more money for electricity – if we can get it. Our pocketbook will be lighter, but our country will be darker. ”

In addition to backing such stringent rules, the Obama administration “slow walks approval of oil and gas production,” Enzi said. “It’s death by delay for the Keystone XL pipeline.”

And it isn’t just Obama’s war on coal that bothers Enzi. He is also upset at an administration plan to lower student loan debt for “a few” college grads.

Enzi on Saturday also took issue with an administration plan to help reduce student loan debt for “a few” college graduates.

“The left is masterful at buying votes with other people’s money, but knocking a few dollars off the average monthly college loan payment does not make up for the policies they have enacted that make it harder for businesses to create jobs and Americans to make a living,” said Enzi.

“There are better ways to help graduates and other Americans who want a better life,” he continued. “We need to rapidly expand the job market.”

Republican proposals help employers create jobs and students get a good education, but the Democrats’ student loan plan does not make college affordable, doesn’t reduce how much students have to borrow, or do anything about lack of jobs graduates face, said Enzi.

“The proposal would increase the federal debt [at $17 trillion] by $400 billion more,” said Enzi. “The only way to claim it wouldn’t is to use more phony accounting.”

“The proposal would also set a dangerous precedent by making private debt into public debt, not to mention that it would enact a job-destroying tax that the Senate’s already rejected,” said Enzi.

Republicans have also introduced bills to help more high school students attend colleges of their choice, while creating jobs, pointed out Enzi.

Enzi hit on an absolute truth about government involvement into any issue – and that is, the more government you have the higher the costs are.

The more involved the federal government becomes in something, the more it seems to cost,” said Enzi, also pointing out the problems with Obamacare.

“In the early days of selling his health care plan, the President said it was going to bring health care prices down,” said Enzi. “I warned then that we would see massive increases in not only what patients pay, but also what the federal government has to pay.”

But premiums are climbing as the Internal Revenue Service prepares to collect heavy taxes.

“There are better ways to ensure more people have improved, affordable healthcare,” said Enzi, noting he wants to repeal Obamacare and replace it with “commonsense, patient-centered reforms.”

“America was built on citizens having the freedom to make choices that best fit them as individuals,” said Enzi. “That’s what Republican education, Republican health care, and other proposals do.”

Scientists Rebut White House Global Warming Claims

Share

Facts are stubborn things… Barack Obamagoes the famous refrain. But we’ve got ourselves a President who is so awesome that he doesn’t have to rely on those pesky facts. This allows him to say things like this:

“The shift to a cleaner energy economy won’t happen overnight, and it will require tough choices along the way,” Obama said. “But the debate is settled. Climate change is a fact. And when our children’s children look us in the eye and ask if we did all we could to leave them a safer, more stable world with new sources of energy, I want us to be able to say, ‘Yes, we did.’”

“We can’t have an energy strategy for the last century that traps us in the past. We need an energy strategy for the future – an all-of-the-above strategy for the 21st century that develops every source of American-made energy.” – President Barack Obama, March 15, 2012

And around the same time we began exploring space, scientists were studying changes taking place in the Earth’s atmosphere. Now, scientists had known since the 1800s that greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide trap heat, and that burning fossil fuels release those gases into the air. That wasn’t news. But in the late 1950s, the National Weather Service began measuring the levels of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere, with the worry that rising levels might someday disrupt the fragile balance that makes our planet so hospitable. And what they’ve found, year after year, is that the levels of carbon pollution in our atmosphere have increased dramatically.

The 12 warmest years in recorded history have all come in the last 15 years. Last year, temperatures in some areas of the ocean reached record highs, and ice in the Arctic shrank to its smallest size on record — faster than most models had predicted it would. These are facts.

That last one’s a doozy!!! I mean why should President Obama be bothered with the truth when it just doesn’t fit his redistribution of wealth agenda? But the 12 warmest years in history have occurred in the last 15 years?? The SAME 15 years that the numbers SHOW there was NO WARMING???

Well Mr. President, I’m sorry to do this, but here are the facts.

  • Global Temperature Update: No global warming at all for 17 years 9 months
  • 212 months without global warming represents more than half the 423-month satellite data record, which began in January 1979
  • Recent extreme weather cannot be blamed on global warming, because there has not been any global warming
  • The fastest centennial warming rate was in Central England from 1663-1762, at 0.9 Cº per century – before the industrial revolution began. It cannot have been our fault.
  • The global warming trend since 1900 is equivalent to 0.8 Cº per century. This is well within natural variability and may not have much to do with us.
  • The fastest warming trend lasting ten years or more occurred over the 40 years from 1694-1733 in Central England. It was equivalent to 4.3 Cº per century.
  • Since 1950, when a human influence on global temperature first became theoretically possible, the global warming trend is equivalent to 1.2 Cº per century.

According to the RSS satellite data, whose value for April 2014 is just in, the global warming trend in the 17 years 9 months since August 1996 is zero. The 212 months without global warming represents more than half the 423-month satellite data record, which began in January 1979. No one now in high school has lived through global warming.

The long Pause may well come to an end by this winter, when an el Niño event is expected in the equatorial eastern Pacific, causing global temperature to rise quite sharply. The el Niños of 1998, 2007, and 2010 are visible in the graph. El Niños occur about every three or four years, though no one is entirely sure what triggers them. They cause a temporary spike in temperature, often followed by a sharp drop during the la Niña phase, as can be seen in 1999, 2008, and 2011-2012, where there was a “double-dip” la Niña.

The ratio of el Niños to la Niñas tends to fall during the 30-year negative or cooling phases of the Pacific Decadal Oscillation, the latest of which began in late 2001. So, though the Pause may pause for a few months at the turn of the year, it may well resume late in 2015.

Either way, it is ever clearer that global warming has not been happening at anything like the rate predicted by the climate models, and is not at all likely to occur even at the much-reduced rate now predicted. There could be as little as 1 Cº global warming this century, not the 3-4 Cº predicted by the IPCC.

You see, there is a growing movement in the scientific community which is pushing back on the UN and their IPCC.

A group of independent scientists, economists, and meteorologists has issued a pointed response to the scientific foundation of the Obama administration’s claims that humans are drastically changing the climate by burning fossil fuels.

With expertise in multiple disciplines, including climate research, weather modeling, physics, geology, statistical analysis, engineering, and economics, the 15 signers make the case that the foundation of the White House National Climate Assessment (NCA) is a “masterpiece of marketing” that crumbles like a “house of cards” under the weight of real-world evidence.

“They promote their ‘Climate Models’ as a reliable way to predict the future climate. But these models dramatically fail basic verification tests. Nowhere do they admit to these well-known failures. Instead, we are led to believe that their climate models are close to perfection,” assert the scientists.

The NCA report is flawed, because it relies on computer models and not raw data.

The 829-page NCA report was released on May 6 and was characterized by administration officials as “the most comprehensive, authoritative, transparent scientific report on U.S. climate change impacts ever generated.”

~~~~~

According to the NCA, “human influences are the primary driver of recent climate change is based on multiple lines of independent evidence.”

The scientists describe that contention as “grossly flawed” and take issue with the EPA’s claim — used to justify greenhouse gas regulation — that there is “90-99 percent certainty that observed warming in the latter half of the twentieth century resulted from human activity.”

That claim “is totally at odds with multiple robust, consistent, independently-derived empirical datasets, all showing no statistically significant positive (or negative) trend in temperature,” they wrote. “Therefore, EPA’s theory … must be rejected.”

These scientists strongly believe that the human burning of fossil fuels is not only not a driver of “climate change,” but it isn’t even a factor and doesn’t belong in our nation’s energy policy.

The scientists’ rebuttal, however, strongly challenges the theory of Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming (CAGW), which it says is “based on a string of inferences that begins with the assumptions” that human burning of fossil fuels is driving up atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide and “is so grossly flawed it should play no role in U.S. Energy Policy Analyses and CO2 regulatory processes.”

And laughingly, even the UN’s IPCC report tends to rebut the President’s assertions and the NCA report.

According to their rebuttal report, “over the last 130 years the decade of the 1930s still has the most U.S. state high temperatures records.”

Their assertion that climate disruptions are not increasing, ironically, is echoed in the most recent report issued by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which the White House often cites to support its own argument.

Globally, according to the IPCC in its 2012 special report on extreme events, “since the 1950s some regions of the world have experienced a trend to more intense and longer droughts, in particular in southern Europe and West Africa, but in some regions droughts have become less frequent, less intense, or shorter, for example, in central North America and northwestern Australia.”

Furthermore, the IPCC in 2013 concluded that “current datasets indicate no significant observed trends in global tropical cyclone frequency over the past century” and “no robust trends in annual numbers of tropical storms, hurricanes and major hurricanes counts have been identified over the past 100 years in the North Atlantic basin.”

Global Temperature Update: No global warming at all for 17 years 9 months

Share

Hat/Tip to Climate Depot for this one. Global Climate Warming Change Alarmists like Al Gore would have you believe that the planet is merely weeks away from self-annihilation. Yet the truth tells a very different story.

“212 months without global warming represents more than half the 423-month satellite data record, which began in January 1979′

‘Recent extreme weather cannot be blamed on global warming, because there has not been any global warming”

Special to Climate Depot 

By Christopher Monckton of Brenchley,

According to the RSS satellite data, whose value for April 2014 is just in, the global warming trend in the 17 years 9 years since August 1996 is zero. The 212 months without global warming represents more than half the 423-month satellite data record, which began in January 1979. No one now in high school has lived through global warming.

no warming 17 years 9 months

The long Pause may well come to an end by this winter, when an el Niño event is expected in the equatorial eastern Pacific, causing global temperature to rise quite sharply. The el Niños of 1998, 2007, and 2010 are visible in the graph. El Niños occur about every three or four years, though no one is entirely sure what triggers them. They cause a temporary spike in temperature, often followed by a sharp drop during the la Niña phase, as can be seen in 1999, 2008, and 2011-2012, where there was a “double-dip” la Niña.

The ratio of el Niños to la Niñas tends to fall during the 30-year negative or cooling phases of the Pacific Decadal Oscillation, the latest of which began in late 2001. So, though the Pause may pause for a few months at the turn of the year, it may well resume late in 2015.

Either way, it is ever clearer that global warming has not been happening at anything like the rate predicted by the climate models, and is not at all likely to occur even at the much-reduced rate now predicted. There could be as little as 1 Cº global warming this century, not the 3-4 Cº predicted by the IPCC.

So it would seem that weather and temp on a global scale is entirely cyclical. Hmmm, isn’t that what we “climate deniers” have been saying all along?

Key facts about global temperature: 

  • The RSS satellite dataset shows no global warming at all for 213 months from August 1996 to April 2014. That is more than half the entire 423-month satellite record.
  • The fastest centennial warming rate was in Central England from 1663-1762, at 0.9 Cº per century – before the industrial revolution began. It cannot have been our fault.
  • The global warming trend since 1900 is equivalent to 0.8 Cº per century. This is well within natural variability and may not have much to do with us.
  • The fastest warming trend lasting ten years or more occurred over the 40 years from 1694-1733 in Central England. It was equivalent to 4.3 Cº per century.
  • Since 1950, when a human influence on global temperature first became theoretically possible, the global warming trend is equivalent to 1.2 Cº per century.
  • The fastest warming rate lasting ten years or more since 1950 occurred over the 33 years from 1974 to 2006. It was equivalent to 2.0 Cº per century.
  • In 1990, the IPCC’s mid-range prediction of the near-term warming trend was equivalent to 3.5 Cº per century.
  • The global warming trend since 1990, when the IPCC wrote its first report, is equivalent to 1.4 Cº per century – two-fifths of what the IPCC had then predicted.
  • In 2013 the IPCC’s new mid-range prediction of the near-term warming trend was for warming at a rate equivalent to 1.7 Cº per century – just half its 1990 prediction.
  • Though the IPCC has cut its near-term warming prediction, it has not cut its centennial warming prediction of 3.7 Cº warming to 2100 on business as usual.
  • The IPCC’s prediction of 3.7 Cº warming by 2100 is more than twice the greatest rate of warming lasting more than ten years that has been measured since 1950.
  • The IPCC’s 3.7 Cº-by-2100 prediction is more than three times the observed real-world warming trend since we might in theory have begun influencing it in 1950.
  • Since 1 January 2001, the dawn of the new millennium, the warming trend on the dataset of five major datasets is zero – 0.0 Cº per century. No warming for 13 years 3 months.
  • Recent extreme weather cannot be blamed on global warming, because there has not been any global warming. It is as simple as that.

Earth Day 2013: Mythical Creatures Plan Protest

Share

Here is another classic CH 2.0 post in honor of Earth day 2013.  

I recently received a message from none other than Bigfoot!  Not wanting to miss an opportunity for a good story, I decided to interview him.

Me:  Hello Bigfoot, thanks for contacting me.  BTW, do you go by Bigfoot?

Bigfoot:  Thanks for answering, FYI, my name is Bill.

Me:  Mmkay, Bill it is.  What was the reason for contacting me?

Bill:  Well, we’re planning a protest.  We’re tired of being compared to something so ridiculous, that we end up looking bad.

Me:  OK then, I have a couple of questions then.  Who are “we?”  and what are you being compared to?

Bill:  “We” are a variety of different “mythical creatures” around the world.  So far, we have Nessie, Champ, and the Yeti on board. What we are opposed to is the whole notion of Man Made Global Warming.   It is infuriating to be compared to something that is being disproved every day!  Don’t these idiots realize that the Earth is cooling?

Me:  So, your issue is the lack of evidence?

Bill:  Absolutely!  There are pictures of Nessie, Champ, and myself.  There are eyewitness sitings of all of us.  There are footprints of myself and the Yeti-he’s my cousin, by the way.  What is there of Global Warming?  Falling temperatures??  It makes us all look bad!

Me:  I see.  What do you intend to do?

Bill:  Initially, we we going to eat environmentalists, but we changed our minds.

Me:  How come?

Bill:  I ate a earth first terrorist once.  Did ya know that most of them are vegans?  He tasted terrible, and I had terrible gas for days!  Even the other monsters avoided me!  As you might guess, there’s no dosage of pepto or beano for a guy my size.  I just had to suffer through it.

Me:  So what’s your plan?

Bill:  Well, we’re going to hold marches and protests, but the MSM won’t cover it.

Me: Oh Really?!?

Bill:  Yeah, they said they’d rather cover a myth that fits their agenda rather than one that can be proved correct.

Me:  Typical… sad, stupid, but typical.  We’ll cover it though.  By the way, what about the chupacabra?

Bill:  Well, there’s a couple problems there.  He refuses to learn English, and he’s (whispers) an illegal immigrant.

Me:  (Facepalm)

Bill:  Thanks…Gotta go, Nessie is texting me.   Bye, and thanks!!!

There you have it folks.  Mythical creatures ignored, who have more evidence on their side than does global warming.  This can only happen in the Liberal Zone.

Earth Day 2013: Is it Just One Big Communist Plot?

Share

EarthDayLenin

In honor of Earth Day 2013 Lenin’s Birthday, here is a classic post from A Conservative Teacher.

Happy Lenin’s Birthday
Is it a coincidence that I’m wishing you this today? I don’t think so. Earth Day arrives on the exact same day as Lenin’s Birthday. One of the very first Earth day celebrations took place exactly on the 100 year anniversary of Comrade Lenin’s birthday. Many former communists saw Earth Day, with its goals and interests, as being very similar to the goals and interests of the great communist Lenin. Does this coincidence convince you that Earth Day is a big communist plot? Need more evidence?

Friends of the Earth
The group that founded “Earth Day” was a group called Friends of the Earth. This group also promotes socialism- just as strongly as it does environmentalism. It advocates economic redistribution, government regulation of nearly all aspects of people’s lives, communal land ownership, control of production in the hands of the masses, etc. Its main bogeymen are: “evil” corporations (especially the Fortune 500 companies,) Big Oil, Wall Street, the World Bank, the World Trade Organization and (naturally) George Bush. Oh yeah- it also founded Earth Day too. It is not far-fetched to think that by promoting and celebrating Earth Day, perhaps some of the other aims of Friends of the Earth will be advanced. Still not convinced that Earth Day is a big communist plot? Need more evidence?

Symbol of Earth Day
The symbol of the first Earth Day is a circle with a broken cross, with the bars pointing downward. It is a New Age symbol meaning the rejection of Christianity. The goal was to replace the worship of the Christian religion with the worship of Mother Earth. Communist ideology demand you worship the state and not a Christian god, and so communists frequently also attack the church. Earth Day then fits very nicely with the goals of communists. Still not convinced that Earth Day is a big communist plot? Need more evidence?

Motives of Earth Day activists
According to wikipedia, the goal of Earth Day is to push for: Total state control of society, especially businesses and industry (to help the environment, I guess). Recognition of the sacred nature of Mother Earth, including an almost reverent worship of anything ‘green’ (to help the environment, I guess). Using force to change people’s behavior (to help the environment, I guess). Stopping or slowing ‘development’ or ‘progress’, to return to a Utopian world of equality (to help the environment, I guess). These goals are the goals of communists, are they not? Still not convinced that Earth Day is a big communist plot? Need more evidence?

More Evidence: Earthday.net
Here are some of the goals, issues, and beliefs on www.earthday.net, one of the official websites promoting Earth Day: “Join the Revolution”! Pass laws that give more power to the government, in order to ‘stop global warming’. Stop building any new energy producing plants. “Protect the poor and middle class from unfairly bearing the cost of climate crisis” by increasing taxes on the rich and redistributing that money to the poor and middle class. Unite all religions in the name of global warming. Teach children in schools less about rights and more about the environment, and their responsibility to fight poverty. Still not convinced that Earth Day is a big communist plot? Need more evidence?

More Evidence: The Wilderness Society
For teachers, The Wilderness Society (an environmental group) has resources on how to teach about Earth Day. Here are some of them: A coloring book for 3rd graders with the theme of “Stop drilling in ANWR”. A timeline that 7th graders can construct of all the laws that government passed, to see the “progress” of government. Stories to read about ‘environmental heroes’- also (coincidentally) all good revolutionary communists

Bush’s Version of Earth Day
Under Republican President George Bush, the official government version of Earth Day was a bit different. According to the EPA website then, as declared by President Bush, Earth Day was more about: Celebrating the gains we have made in protecting the environment. Achieving meaningful results in protecting the environment. Encouraging volunteer efforts to save energy, reduce or recycle, and educate yourself to be more friendly to the environment. Taking pride in America by maintaining our public lands

Obama’s Version of Earth Day
Under Democrat President Barack Obama, the official government version of Earth Day though looks very much like Lenin’s birthday. According to the EPA website now, according to President Obama, Earth Day is about: Learning about environmental justice, which is the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people in the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies. Earth Day is about lobbying your local school to spend less time teaching reading and math and more time teaching environmental protection. Most importantly, Earth Day is about engaging in celebrations and festivals of worship on this most holy of days.

Earth Day: A Communist Plot
So, today when the news runs story after story about Earth Day, when teachers encourage you to ‘celebrate’ Earth Day, when google and yahoo ‘go green’, you can now respond back by saying-

“Happy Earth Day too, comrade”.

Earth Day 2013: In Search of the Missing Myth

Share

It’s Earth Day Hippie Burn Out/ Get High and Celebrate Marxism Day!  So, to commemorate it with the prerequisite amount of ridicule, here is the first of several classic CH 2.0 posts.  Enjoy!

Now friends, since the war on women has backfired, gun control was defeated, and the Boston Marathon Bombers were not white,  the messiah is creating more and more distractions from his economic failure.  But there is one thing that is conspicuous in its absence.  What the hell happened to global warming?  It’s taken a back seat during the campaign.  Since when is the apocalypse put on hold?   I am therefore declaring it missing, and would like your help in finding it.

According to Director Robert S. Mueller, III, FBI Director, Global Warming was reported missing several years ago, as the messiah took office.  According to Director Mueller;

Global Warming has been discussed and debated quite a bit over the last year, however, it hasn’t actually been seen since 2007.  No one that we have talked to has actually been in contact with Global Warming.  It is quite a mystery, but I want the American to rest assured that we will search diligently until Global Warming is located.  The messiah has charged me with this task, and we have our best people working on it.”

To supplement the forces of the messiah, I have enlisted the aid of our crack Conservative Hideout 2.0 Investigative Team.  Here are some of our findings:

  1. Arctic Ice expanded by 31% in 2008, and 5000km more in 2011.
  2. Temperatures were colder in 2008.
  3. Solar output is closely correlated to global temperature.
  4. The Polar Bears are not dying off.

To gauge the Democratic response to those findings, we consulted with Al Borg, author of “An Inconsistent Truth.”

Me:  Welcome Mr. Borg, I’d like your reaction to our findings.  What is your response to the fact that global temperatures are dropping, and the arctic sea ice is growing?

Borg:  WE ARE THE BORG.  YOUR CULTURE WILL ADAPT YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINTS TO SERVICE US.

Me:  I see.  Do you have a message for the American people?

Borg:  RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.

Me: Ah heh…. Do you have any evidence to support your claims, especially in light of the correlation between solar activity and global temperature?

Borg:  RESISTANCE IS FUTILE; YOU WILL SUFFER WHILE MY MANSIONS ARE BRIGHTLY LIT.  I WILL LAUGH AS I FLY OVER YOUR FREEZING HOUSES IN MY PRIVATE JET.

Me:  Mmkay, Goodbye (Damn, why are all these democrats freaks?).

Next, I decided to talk to a burnt out hippie to get a better feel for the opposition.  After all, who best to know of Global Warming than a burnt out, unwashed hippie?

Dirty, Burnt Out HippieDirty, Burnt Out Hippie

Me:  Hi hippie scum, ‘sup?

Hippie:  DUUUUUDE!  How is the cosmos treatin you man?

Me:  Just fine, you burn out.  What do you think about Earth Day?

Hippie:  DUUUUUUDE!  I was at Earth Day Maaaaan!  The predictions are dire dude.

Me: How so?

Hippie:  Did you know DUDE… that civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind. Not only that dude, that by 1995, somewhere between 75 and 85 percent of all the species of living animals will be extinct.

Me: Orly?

Hippie: Yeah DUDE!  It’s a bummer maaan.  But it gets worse.  Did you know that the world will be eleven degrees colder in the year 2000? This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age. Duuude, it’s a major buzzkill (inhales deeply on a bong).  How will we grow more weed duuuude?

Me:  I see.  Is there more?

Hippie:  Oh yeah DUUUDE!!  They were saying that by 1985, air pollution would have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half? How will we grow weed dude?  Did you also know that that in 1973, 200,000 Americans will die from air pollution, and that by 1980 the life expectancy of Americans would be 42 years?

Me:  Hey man, answer me one question…what year is it?

Hippie:  DUUUDE!  Calendars are for fascists!  We can’t be restrained by imposed time limits…  Is it about 1972?

Me:  (Facepalm) Do you know that it’s 2012, and NONE of the things you said even came close to happening?

Hippie:  DUUUUUUUDE (Hits bong deeply)

With the few remaining brain cells of the hippie dying, I decided to move on.  I guess that  because the earth had cooled between the late 40?s and late 70?s, the environmentalists made their exaggerations “fit” the data.  Then, when the earth began to warm in the 80?s and 90?s, they had to retool their warnings of doom and gloom to create a “global Warming” scare.  Each time though, it’s the same thing.  We’re destroying the Earth, and it’s capitalism’s fault.  What will they do if the current cooling continues?  It just might given the fact that the sun is about to go into one of it’s regular phases of decreased output.  How much do they expect the people of the world to “buy?”

Frankly, unless evidence proves the contrary, the Conservative Hideout can’t declare Man Made Global Warming missing, we may have to state that it never existed!

Happy Earth Day 2013 Lenin’s Birthday.  This is the first in a series of posts today regarding the wonderful leftist tradition of Earth Day 2013 Lenin’s Birthday.  Last year, Soopermexican published an info-graphic that infuriated the left.  If it infuriates the left, I certainly don’t want to be left out, so I obtained permission to publish it here.

bloody history of Earth day

So, at the request of Soopermexican, share this far and wide.  There will be three more posts throughout the day.  Keep stopping  back for more Earth Day 2013 Lenin’s Birthday fun!

Drakes Bay Oyster Company Killed by Bureaucratic Fiat

Share

Imagine that you run a business.  Also, imagine that the business had been in existence for nearly 100 years.  Then, imagine with the stroke of a pen, an unelected bureaucrat ended your likelihood.  I did happen, the Drakes Bay Oyster Company was killed off.   Moonbattery has a video describing the families plight, as well as the intentional lies used by the government to shut it down.

In the end, the government did close down the business. And, apparently, the government simply made up “evidence” to justify it.

I would also reinforce the point made by the scientist in the video. Once people think that the ends justify the means, all sorts of horrific things can happen.

Alarmists Complain About Heartland Institute Pointing out “Inconvenient Truths”

Share

What happens when a Conservative think tank points out that some mass killers, or other bad guys, were also climate alarmists?  Alarmists go on a tirade of hypocrisy! Here is some more from the Guardian…

The Heartland Institute, a Chicago-based rightwing thinktank notorious for promoting climate scepticism, has launched quite possibly one of the most ill-judged poster campaigns in the history of ill-judged poster campaigns.

I’ll let its own press release for its upcoming conference explain, as there’s simply no need to finesse it further:

Billboards in Chicago paid for by The Heartland Institute point out that some of the world’s most notorious criminals say they “still believe in global warming” – and ask viewers if they do, too…The billboard series features Ted Kaczynski, the infamous Unabomber; Charles Manson, a mass murderer; and Fidel Castro, a tyrant. Other global warming alarmists who may appear on future billboards include Osama bin Laden and James J. Lee (who took hostages inside the headquarters of the Discovery Channel in 2010).
These rogues and villains were chosen because they made public statements about how man-made global warming is a crisis and how mankind must take immediate and drastic actions to stop it.
Why did Heartland choose to feature these people on its billboards? Because what these murderers and madmen have said differs very little from what spokespersons for the United Nations, journalists for the “mainstream” media, and liberal politicians say about global warming. The point is that believing in global warming is not “mainstream,” smart, or sophisticated. In fact, it is just the opposite of those things. Still believing in man-made global warming – after all the scientific discoveries and revelations that point against this theory – is more than a little nutty. In fact, some really crazy people use it to justify immoral and frightening behavior.

But then comes the best bit:

Of course, not all global warming alarmists are murderers or tyrants.

Seriously?  The Unabomber bombed out of concern for the environment.  Bin Laden did speak of concern for the environment.  It’s true!  Now, for the flip side, what have alarmists said of people that see through the political power grab?

The idea is simple, if someone presents facts that run counter to the narrative, smear them, so no one will pay attention to the facts.  Here is the latest example comes from Professor Kari Norgaard, via The GateWay Pundit…

Professor Kari Norgaard, from the University of Oregon, has labeled an entire population of people who think for themselves… racists.  But, it’s even more absurd than that.  If you reject the junk data, corruption, and blatant grab for power that is the Green Movement she wants you diagnosed with a disease.  And treated.

Via Bluegrass PunditThe Register reports,

Scepticism regarding the need for immediate and massive action against carbon emissions is a sickness of societies and individuals which needs to be “treated”, according to an Oregon-based professor of “sociology and environmental studies”. Professor Kari Norgaard compares the struggle against climate scepticism to that against racism and slavery in the US South.

According to an Oregon uni statement announcing the paper:

Resistance at individual and societal levels must be recognized and treated …

“This kind of cultural resistance to very significant social threat is something that we would expect in any society facing a massive threat,” [Norgaard] said.

The discussion, she said, is comparable to what happened with challenges to racism or slavery in the U.S. South.’

Well, I guess it not as bad as suggesting that people that don’t “cooperate” with the alarmist agenda be killed…

Oh wait!

Alrighty then, the Heartland Institute puts up billboards citing actual murderers that committed crimes in the name of the environment, or plan on using tyrants that supported the alarmist cause.  That’s apparently bad.  However, I seem to be missing the moral outrage over the two stories I covered in the past.  I guess the lack of perspective there is a side effect of drinking the AGW Kool Aid.  Or, as we like to call it, hypocrisy.

Concerned that too many “deniers” are in the meteorology business, global warming activists this month launched a campaign to recruit local weathermen to hop aboard the alarmism bandwagon and expose those who are not fully convinced that the world is facing man-made doom.

The Forecast the Facts campaign — led by 350.org, the League of Conservation Voters and the Citizen Engagement Lab — is pushing for more of a focus on global warming in weather forecasts, and is highlighting the many meteorologists who do not share their beliefs.

“Our goal is nothing short of changing how the entire profession of meteorology tackles the issue of climate change,” the group explains on their website. “We’ll empower everyday people to make sure meteorologists understand that their viewers are counting on them to get this story right, and that those who continue to shirk their professional responsibility will be held accountable.”

According to the Washington Post, the reason for the campaign can be found in a 2010 George Mason University surveys, which found that 63% of television weathermen think that global warming is a product of natural causes, while 31% believe it is from human activity.
